Slug Trap - or "Beer Garden"

Cut several 1-inch square openings in the sides of a clean covered cottage cheese container or margarine tub. Sink the container into the soil so the openings are just above the soil surface.

Remove the lid and pour in 1/2-inch of beer, or whip up a yeast mixture:

2 tablespoons flour

1/2 teaspoon baker's yeast

1 teaspoon sugar

2 cups warm water

Replace the lid.

Slugs will be attracted to the trap, fall in and drown. Empty the container every few days and refill.
